How can I mount my GPS on the dash?
I just bought a 2003 325i and am trying to mount a GPS on my dashboard. I tried the dash mounting sticky disk that came with the GPS and even had them send me a new one because I thought that maybe the glue had dried out. But neither the new disk, nor velcro or double-sided tape will stick to that dash. Has anyone had this problem? The suction cup works fine on the windshield but it kind of obstructs the view. Help please. Oh, and yes, I did clean the dashboard before I tried to stick the suction cup disk.

One drop "Dawn" dish soap, & tooth brush-scrub.
Clean off.
Alcohol, & tooth brush-scrub
Clean off.
Should work.

i bought a vent mount holder. my disc thing looked out of place on my dash and seemed like it nearly destroyed my dash when i tried to remove it. I think the vent one looks cleaner and removes easier

Take a look at this thread...


I thought it looked pretty good in his DIY

Also, take a look at....


They have some unique holders / mounts on their site.

I use a Pro-Fit mount for my GPS. The Pro-Fit attaches underneath the trim piece around the radio and sits to the right of the A/C controls. Search for Pro Fit and you'll likely find several photos.

Well, this might give some placement suggestions:


Or you can do what this guy did, if you got the skillz...

Not really "on" the dash, but here's what I came up with http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=301244.
